Koskinen's stock has dropped rapidly over last 12 months... He has no value at this time and his future is questionable

We can argue about Nilsson and that is fine we both clearly have a different view on him and his role in Isles future but Poulin has already passed Koskinen up on depth chart and his development is farther ahead then Koskinen

+ He is a butterfly goalie and the hip injury is a major concern given the wear and tear that style of play has on a goalie longterm (Although that is more a concern with smaller butterfly goalies Jocelyn Thibault and his hip issues as example). But to have a hip injury at 22 is concerning

And the situation is becoming fairly clear with Koskinen down in AHL this year as he has floundered ,,, It can be attributed to him coming off injury but by 18 games you should have started to see major improvement in his game and that has not happened with further is worrisome with his development and longterm viability

5-13 3.59 GAA / .884 Sv Pct is his stat line in AHL this year and you cant argue it is the result of a poor team when Poulin performed so well there and Lawson put up a .900+ sv pct
